the Creator 17 has all of the features many photo and video professionals need, want, and use on a daily basis. And while it doesn't come without its faults, this 17-inch workhorse is worth a close look if you're interested in a powerful desktop replacement with a professional-grade display that can chew through almost any creative task.

Performance notebook with a mini LED display

This Creator 17 is right now the only notebook available with a mini LED display, with 1000+ nits of maximum brightness, HDR 1000 support, and excellent colors and uniformity. It's also a fairly well-rounded product, with a minimalist and lightweight metallic build, alright IO and inputs, latest-generation hardware, and a fair-sized battery. At the same time, though, this is compromised in a couple of ways and expensive, with most of the extra demanded for that mini LED screen

A high-powered laptop for multimedia producers
global.techradar.com
  • - 3.5
The MSI Creator 17 is a fine example of a new category of creator notebook that fall between hard core gaming rigs and high-powered workstations. The focus is on digital multimedia production, powered here by the latest Intel CPU and Nvidia GPU tech, so there's masses of raw horsepower to play with. The stand out feature for content creators is the novel 17" IPS screen which is the first laptop we've seen using micro LEDs for backlighting. This delivers fantastic brightness and contrast, much improved HDR playback, and nearly 100% of the RGB colour gamut for more accurate colour reproduction. Screen performance is outstanding with rich and even tones throughout. However, you're paying a hefty premium for this novelty, and for ZAR 53,000 (£2499) the flimsy body shell and cheap looking hinges feel like a bit of a letdown
